New CSIS Resources Discuss HIV Prevention Technology, Address U.S. Role In Funding, Advancing Efforts

Center for Strategic & International Studies: The Evolution and Future of HIV Prevention Technology: An HIV Policy Primer
Maggie McCarten-Gibbs, program manager, and Sara M. Allinder, executive director and senior fellow, both with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, authored a paper examining HIV prevention technology. A summary of the paper states, “There is an opportunity now to address critical implementation challenges for [HIV] prevention tools with several novel HIV prevention tools at different stages of development. Elevating prevention now will have to be a political, policy, and financial choice that puts more resources toward accelerating access to important new HIV technology with the goal of driving down the infection rate. As the U.S. government remains the leading funder of global HIV efforts, a systematic reassessment of U.S. prioritization of and commitment to prevention should be conducted before development of a new strategy for 2021 and beyond starts over the next year” (McCarten-Gibbs/Allinder, 10/22).
